Hi. I am a 46 yr old. I had a helleirs myotomy and funden nisopllication when i was 12 yrs old. Ever since the op i have had trouble getting most food to pass into my stomach without the aid of a drink. Things started to get worse in the last few years so i went to my G.P. He referred me to a specialist who gave me botox injections but this didn't help. Last year i went back and had a small ballooon dalitation (there are 3 sizes) which also didn't work. I went back again and had a medium balloon dalitation and that didn't work either. My consultant said the only treatment left is the large balloon dalitation but strongly advised against me having that as it has high risk of death or long term stay in intensive care (he told me the last time he did this procedure the patient ended up in intensive care for 3 months and almost died). He referred me for a second opinion but that consultant couldn't offer any other options either just told me to go back if i suffer significant weight loss. My original consultant has arranged for me to have an edoscopy once every 2yrs for the rest of my life to check for cancer.
My consultant was honest to inform me that my future didn't look very hopeful and i wondered if anyone else knew of someone who had had the same procedures of me that then later died and how long they lived for. I know it's diffferent for some people than others but i am just curious.
Ever since the op i had my lungs get sore if i run very short distances and feel cold but none of the doctors have an explanation for this.
Does anyone know about these symptoms and why i have them?
